WALL-E

5 07 2008

 

This movie deserves all the positive hype surrounding it. PIXAR’s best to date…and that’s saying a lot!
 
I watched Wall-E last night with my five-year-old. I think some of the intricacies of the plot may have been a little advanced for a kid in his age-range (I had to explain some things for him during the movie), but even so, he enjoyed it every bit as much as I did. The settings were great, the animation was amazing, and every scene held pleasant surprises. It had a lot of heart and a great message. Not only has it made my list of all-time favorite family movies, it is in the top tier of my list of favorite science fiction movies. 

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++=

Had a good night tonight. My family and I went to see fireworks at The American Village in Montevallo. This is a historical village education center with recreations of many historic buildings. We sat on a blanket in front of a recreation of Mount Vernon and watched a really impressive show. It was as good, if not better, than the show we saw at Disney World. This was a pleasant surprise. The place was packed and it took a while to leave the parking lot so we did not get home until late…*YAWNING*…it’s time to call it a night.

Happy 4th of July!

Did you see Short Circuit as a kid?

I wasn’t planning to see Wall-E. You made it sound like something I should look into for Brandon. He is anxiously awaiting the Star Wars flick due out in August.

Yeah. I loved Short Circuit as a kid. When I was in elementary school I told my dad I wanted to be a robotic engineer as a kid because of that movie.

WALL-E is well worth seeing. I can’t sing its praises enough. I’m actually thinking about taking my son again and taking my wife with us this time so she gets a chance to see it on the big screen (something I rarely consider doing — usually I never watch a movie more than once).

That is high praise. I am the same way. Convincing my son to go to a movie is difficult though. He is 9 and has never liked it. I’ve only gotten him to go twice. We saw chicken little when he was 6.

“He is 9 and has never liked it.”

— Sometimes I wish I had that problem. Mine wants to see every single movie that comes out. I blame Nickelodian and The Disney Channel. My wife or I usually take him a few times a year as a treat.

LOL Begging doesn’t even work with Brandon. I am so hoping to get him to go in August. He would much rather play video games (while making up his own stories to go with the action as he’s playing through) He doesn’t even like to sit still for movies at home much. They really have to catch his eye. Most of the time if he is watching tv he is orchestrating something with his toys. It most often involves Halo characters or Star Wars characters or a combination.
